Philosophy

Coming from a spirit of warmth and optimism, I wholeheartedly believe that change is not only possible, but likely. People are resilient, and through the healing (and a little bit of humor…) that happens in the clinical space, clients can experience the growth theyve been hoping for. I aim to leave clients with a sense that they are in a partnership with someone who is committed to their wellbeing.

Personal Statement

Throughout the years, my clients have often so generously shared with me reflections like, You just get meand I feel safe. Theyve given me the credit when, truly, the work is only possible because they invite me into knowing their wishes, strengths, and challenges. Together, we consider those echoes from the clients past that sometimes spill into their lives today. Examining those circumstances that clients bravely come to therapy with can allow for deeper joy and peace in their lives. And when exploring those circumstances feels vulnerable, I remind clients, No judgement here.

About Me Interview

What do you love doing more than anything in the world?
Hanging out with anybody’s dog, or cat, or bird, or bunny, or creature!

What is the self-care strategy you use most often?
Reaching out to those I feel connected to and developing new connections.

What was your dream job in elementary school?
I wanted to be a teacher, and I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to do that, teaching psychotherapy courses to graduate students.

What is your favorite movie of all time?
Field of Dreams. It speaks to my beliefs as a clinician: that the totality of our life experience comes with us to the present day, and that we have the opportunity to grow and change our relationship with it. Also, who wouldn’t wish to be asked, “Do you want to have a catch?” by someone so important to us?

Describe your ideal vacation. Has it happened yet?
My awe-inspiring trips to Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon take my breath away even now as I reflect on them. Such a dream come true!

What is the most delicious meal you can imagine?
Pretty much anything beige. Pasta, cream sauce, cake: all the stuff we are warned against :
